Tiddly Inks challenge 16-windows.

Hello peeps!!!
I had an absolutely wonderful day yesterday. We went to Grimsthorpe Castle with some special friends ( including mo's "best best best best best friend"!!!). We cycled for 9.4 miles, most of the ride was on lovely ground but there was some very definate off roading over bumpy grass that left my thighs a burning!!!! romfl! we had a gorgeous relaxed picnic lunch and then onto exploring the gardens and veggy patch and of course the adventure playground. All 3 boys adored going in with the deers and sheep and Mo was amazed by the male deers with huge antlers!
Today Mo and I have been watching the combine again! He is always memorised by this huge piece of machinery!! he absolutely loves them.

So enough Lou waffle and onto my card!!!!

The challenge over on Tiddly Inks challenge blog this week is windows. Now I have to admit my firs attempt I just couldn't warm to so I decided to go for clean and simple with this one. I have had this cute little girl, called watcha doing? for a while and not used her and she just lended herself to the window with her little peeking face and hands that fitted wonderfully over the window ledge.

And how awesome is the gothic window?!!! I love it.It comes with the gorgeous scattered brickwork around it too. I printed it out onto some linen cardstock to get a sort of rough stone look and coloured it all with my chalks.I really like the stoney chalky effect. You can just about see the gorgeous trees and grass through the window
I coloured my little girl with my promarkers and embossed her so she stands out through the window.
I went for an easel fold because they are sweet cards and used the sentiment that comes with the little girl to hold the easel up.

I am actually quite chuffed with a simple little card for today!!! will be making some more cards tonight as I have 4 birthdays coming this week!!! busy me!!!
Thank you for popping in!!!

Hugs Lou xxxxxx
